I contacted tages support regarding how to identify their drivers, and they replied this:
The most reliable way to know the version is the timestamp of the drivers'
signature, atksgt.sys and lirsgt.sys.
I found these files in system32/drivers, but also 2 more similar files matching the pattern *sgt.sys

I tried using protectionID 0.6.4.0 to identify these files, and they are detected as Tages copy protection, but without a version number. The same program can scan .CAB files and will find the TagesSetup.exe that is delivered with the DVD, and in this case it will also often show the version.

Not sure how legit the protectionID thing is, but someone surely put a lot of work into it.

The names of the apparently older drivers that are installed on my system are atjsgt.sys and linsgt.sys.

Hope it helps, this kind of information should be somewhere.

No, it is still a problem in case the tages driver wasnt downloaded from www.tagesprotection.com/ and installed BEFORE installing the game

Also both driver and game profit from getting installed with Right-Mouse-Button -> Install as Admin

There are still several 'traps' to step into. Zino is working on this wth his loader

i don't know about the drivers, i just followed the installation guide that said to get the newest from the website, and when it didn't work then i gave it access in the dep as mentioned before. I've also installed the boosterpack and am using the mappack and seasmod now, everythings working still on my laptop with win7, but my desktop with vista,...not so much, don't know why, just keeps giving the "launcher has stopped working" problem, no prompt to fill in my serial or anything.

If it's the dvd version use the tages vista driver from pw's tool folder. Run it once to uninstall the current installation

Then reboot the pc and install the driver from pws tools folder

Start it with right-mouse-button -> as admin

We had positive feedback with this
